  1. Wonderful, what a beast! Can’t wait to see what you do with it.

  2. Matt – A quick question: did you have any problems with the negatives curling after they dried?

  3. No, they dried surprisingly flat. Initially, they were a bit curly, but they straightened out overnight.

  4. I can’t wait to hear about the experience. My dad used to shoot a TLR, and I’ve always wanted to know what it feels like.

  5. ‘I’ve always wanted to know what it feels like.’

    Briefly, it’s heavy, and the left/right reverse is confusing, but it takes pretty pictures.

  6. I look forward to seeing your new work produced with the Mamiya. I also found using a waist level finder confusing, I ended up getting an angle finder for my recently purchased Fuji 680III, which is a real beast of a camera.

  7. Matt – once you adjust to the left-right deal, the WL finder can be a real asset. I always found prisms to be clumsy on TLRs, except on tripods.

    Enjoy the beast! Your viewing public eagerly awaits the photos.

  8. Matt – I wonder, do you think you will add any other lenses to the Mamiya ?

    Matt,

    Will you be changing the blog’s name to 2point8? The 80mm might have a little more depth of field wide open than the 50mm at 1.4 but I love the fall off in focus in this shot. Good luck with your new toy 😉

  10. Graham, I suspect I’ll stick with the one lens for now.
